The Details

Tasting Note White floral aromas mingle with early season peach, honeysuckle, lime zest and fresh ginger complemented by hints of brioche and pine nuts. Fine natural acidity defines the Cave Block Chardonnay and accentuates the flavours of lifted white peach and ginger marmalade. Hints of flint and spice add an extra complexity as they combine with the fine texture and acidity, providing a deliciously fresh, lingering finish.
Best Enjoyed With Greek chicken, farro, roasted carrots, onions and capsicum with lemon-yoghurt dressing and a sprinkle of currants and flaked almonds. Or fettuccine with yellow tomato sauce, zucchini, capers and grilled red capsicum.
Treatment The fruit was meticulously handpicked before whole bunch pressing, and then placed into a mix of new and old French oak barriques and puncheons for 11 months. Winemaking included a parcel of wild fermentation, light lees contact and partial malolactic fermentation.

Accolades

It's very chardonnay
Oatmeal and crushed fennel notes play in with ripe peach and citrus. I wouldn’t call this chardonnay intense and yet it has body and, too, a fair bit going on. It’s very chardonnay, so to speak. Fruit and oak in harmony with a good acid line.
Campbell Mattinson

Lovely wine
One of the leading vineyards in Northern Tasmania. This is a very low yielding site which contributes to wines of tremendous depth and power. The fruit is all handpicked and whole bunch pressed to a mix of old and new French oak barriques and puncheons for about 11 months. Getting the combination of oaks just right is so important and, in this case, it’s been nailed. It’s typically linear and has just a touch of struck match minerality that sets it off brilliantly. Lovely wine.
